FAQ

Read the full list of FAQ

How does this work?

You can think of WordPress as the frontend and Shopify as the backend. You still manage your store data inside Shopify (e.g., changing prices) and those changes automatically show inside WordPress. ShopWP is bundled with its own fly-out cart experience and allows you to sell directly on WordPress. When the user is ready to checkout, they’re redirected to the defalt Shopify checkout page to enter payment information.

After installing the plugin, you can connect your Shopify store by following the easy to use wizard. After connecting, you can display your products in the following ways:

  • Using the default pages “example.com/products” and “example.com/collections”
  • Shortcodes
  • Programmatically through the plugin’s Render API

You can also create product detail pages by syncing the product posts.

Is this SEO friendly?

We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure we’ve conformed to all the SEO best practices including semantic alt text, Structured Data, and indexable content.

Doesn’t Shopify already have a WordPress plugin?

They used to, but it has been discontinued.

Shopify has instead moved attention to their buy button embedd, which allows you to show products with a JavaScript snippet. The main drawback to this is that Shopify uses iFrames for the embed which limits the ability for layout customizations. Additionally, managing multiple JavaScript embeds can get annoying really fast.

In contrast, ShopWP creates an iFrame-free experience allowing you to sync Shopify data directly into WordPress. We also save the products and collections as custom post types which unlocks the native power of WordPress itself.

Does this work with third party Shopify apps?

The only “Unfortunately no. We rely on the main Shopify API which doesn’t expose third-party app data. However the functionality found in many of the Shopify apps can be reproduced by other WordPress plugins.

How do I display my products?

Documentation on how to display your products can be found here.

How does the checkout process work?

ShopWP does not handle any portion of the checkout process. When a customer clicks the checkout button within the cart, they’re redirected to the default Shopify checkout page to finish the process.

Does this work with Shopify’s Lite plan?

Absolutely! In fact this is our recommendation if you intend to only sell on WordPress. More information on Shopify’s Lite plan

Can I use this and Shopify at the same time?

Absolutely! ShopWP doesn’t prevent you from using Shopify on other platforms like Facebook or using a Shopify theme directly.

I have really liked this plugin over the past few years, however, no more. I had a complete project 100% ready to. Just needed to update one plugin. ShopWP! After updating the plugin I see that they have removed the feature that allows you to sync collections. The previous version had this feature, therefore, it was active on the website. With the new update, that feature is now removed and all sections reference the collections now do not work. The client was pissed and all I could do is refund the project as we had already spent days getting all the shortcodes to work. I no longer recommend this plugin. Just setup a shopify account and avoid the headache I just went through.

The software was working until the last upgrade and now is no longer synching. I have emailed customer support 3 times with no answer. Other people are having the same issue. The software is buggy. I would not purchase until they have this sorted out.

I like the app and how easy things are to do. The problem is that it hasn't been updated in 4 months. It's not entirely compatible with the current version of WP. With that, the (incredibly helpful) video tutorials are out of date. They're still useful, but you have to fill in some blanks.

This plugin is fantastic for running multiple stores/looks from one Shopify backend. Andrew provides fantastic support and is invested in delivering a quality product.

Does everything on what it says. Easy to use and very smooth.

I just published my first site for a client using this plugin and it delivered beautifully. Andrew has been with me, either in spirit or in his actual responses to my calls for help along the whole process. It is obvious that he cares about the folks using his plugin and works constantly to solve every issue.
